Equipment World July issue sneak peek: Grade Regulator bucket adjusts final grade on the fly
| July 05, 2012 |
A bucket that adjusts final grade on the fly will be launched this summer by Indiana contractor Philip Paull. The Grade Regulator is the latest in a line of attachments he’s created through his three-year old manufacturing firm, Excavating Solutions, building on his more than 20 years of experience as an excavating contractor.
Most excavator buckets can be converted into a Grade Regulator with the addition of what Paull calls a “pilot,” an adjustable steering head welded onto the bucket. The patent-pending pilot moves up and down according to inputs received from a machine’s grade control system.
